30 Days of Thankfulness: Week 1

Except my son is 18, well above the acceptable age for daycare.

The Holidays Will Get You

It is currently a smidge over 3 weeks until Thanksgiving in the United States. This means that my evening news is filled with feel good stories about being thankful and helpful, my facebook is filled with the countdowns of 'what we are thankful for', and my twitter is filled with people trying to drag others into their thankfulness.Because, you know, that's what it's all about, right?For one month a year (two months, really, since Christmas has it's own insanity) people are a bit nicer, a bit less bitter, a bit more likely to say thankyou. What about the rest of the year?...more
